An Agrocybe on wood….

would narrow it down to maybe a few – maybe – but on wood like this????

Agrocybe acericola grows on hardwood but this is not A. acericola. What other Agrocybe grows on hardwood ? (not on mulch or woodchips)

Thanks Danny

looking better, you could be right. Some sort of brown or rusty brown, (light brown could seem white) on caps. Resembles something like Galerina on caps, except on cap diam… but stems don’t fit, neighter on Kuehneromyces. It’s difficult to me seeing a Armillaria there. I saw other possibility like pholiota lignicola http://linnet.geog.ubc.ca/...

I think you may be right. It’s hard to tell what’s spores from what’s camera effects with lighting.

The poster has guessed at Armillaria, so I think I’ll change my vote. I don’t really see any other options, and these don’t really look like Kuehneromyces either.

Stobbs, can you shed any light?

PS, here is another instance of voter “fraud” ….lol. These most certainly ARE Agaricales, so voting ‘as if’ is to swing the vote without discipline.

White spore mass

The second pileus to the right is covered. The one behind it is covered. Diagonally up and down to the right the pilei are covered. These mushrooms are covered in obvious white spore mass.

Even if I didn’t see the spore mass I would probably vote the same way.

or simply Pholiota…..

i think these are dark spored

though there’s relatively little (if any) heavy spore deposits on pileus tops for how much overlapping is going on. i think I see some darker pigmentation on some gill faces.
